A woman has been arrested in Kebirigo sub-location, Nyamira County, on suspicion of terminating a seven month pregnancy and throwing the baby in a pit latrine.
The 26 year old is suspected to have ran away from her matrimonial home in Riakimai Bosamaro, to her sister’s home in Nyamira in order to terminate the pregnancy.
Maria Maroko was arrested and after interrogation, she accepted that the infant rescued from the pit latrine was hers.
Unfortunately the baby passed away a few minutes after being rescued. The remains were taken to Nyamira referral hospital mortuary.
Maria will be arraigned at the Nyamira Law Courts.
